The arrival of the AMD Ryzen 7000X3D is getting closer, marking February 28 as the arrival of the first models. It will be on that date when we see the new 7900X3D and 7950X3D processors with 16 and 12 cores respectively, divided into several CCDs. Knowing that the launch is imminent, a update AGESA 22.214.171.124c What will these processors do? Ryzen 7000X3D compatible and in the case of brands such as ASUS we see that we will have more control over CCDs on X670 boards.
Each generation of AMD processors has brought with it a number of improvements in performance and efficiency. Since the beginnings of the Zen 1 architecture, the company has shown that it can compete against Intel, offering very competent processors. However, Intel always manages to be superior in gaming, even if it is using much higher frequencies and consumption. With the launch of the Ryzen 5800X3DAMD was able to change the market in its favor, as this processor managed to be far superior to the Ryzen 5000 in games being able to compete against the best of Intel. Their successors will arrive soon, in the form of 7950X3D and 7900X3Dwhile the 7800X3D will arrive a few months later.
ASUS releases a Beta BIOS with AGESA 126.96.36.199c with interesting news

Motherboard companies are already preparing for the release of the next Ryzen 7000X3D. We are all waiting with great interest to see what improvements they will bring and if they will really be able to out-gaming Intel with these processors. But leaving behind the performance they will have, it’s time to talk about BIOS updates by brands like ASUS. And it is that, from this we highlight the fact that its latest BIOS beta 0921 with AGESA 188.8.131.52c will give a greater control users with Ryzen 7000X3D processors like the 7900X3D, 7950X3D and its variants without 3D V-Cache.
As we can see, ASUS has added a dynamic change of CCX priority, with several options to choose from. We have several algorithms that will trigger under a certain condition and perform an action. While no examples are shown of how this will change, we can imagine that it will improve the discrepancy between CCDmaking faster cores are prioritized. In addition, we are given the possibility of combining various algorithms and establishing new conditions and intervals to switch between CCDs.
MSI also updates its BIOS with AGESA and adds new features
Like ASUS, other motherboard companies have announced new BIOS updates and AGESA 184.108.40.206c support. So, we have MSI which brings a series of innovations that will improve the performance of the PCs with Ryzen 7950X3D and 7900X3D. And it is that, with its new BIOS, new options have been added such as the Enhanced Mode Boostwhich are 3 MSI PBO Profiles intended to increase the performance of such processors. Also announced is the update to SMU 218 with optimizations for Ryzen 7000 X3 CPUs.
Finally, a new High-Efficiency Mode is added that will allow improve the performance of your RAM by adjusting the timings more aggressively. The latter is really interesting, since the RAM overclock, especially if we seek to achieve the minimum latency, implies changing many values in the timings and carrying out constant tests. In the end it is a time consuming process As a general rule and an automatic solution that improves the frequencies and latency of the factory would be interesting. Although we always recommend using a manual RAM OCthat with tools like DRAM Calculator by 1usmus we have much of the work done.
